“America had first joined the wrong side by equipping and financing the French in their venture to reimpose colonial rule. America was now becoming the wrong side by moving directly into Vietnam to install Diem and his family as the representatives of its power.”

Flagler Beach Is Open For Business: A1A Construction Update:

FlaglerLive is providing weekly updates to year-long construction on and near State Road A1A in Flagler Beach as the Florida Department of Transportation rebuilds a 1.5-mile segment from South 9th Street to South 22nd Street, and builds a sea wall at the north end of town. These updates are provided through DOT or local officials. If you have any relevant information or images, you’re welcome to email them to the editor here.

Segment 2: South 22nd to South 9th Street: A significant detour on State Road (S.R.) A1A in Flagler Beach is set to start Tuesday, Feb 26, as construction continues on a project to protect the road from erosion and future storm events. The work is part of a Florida Department of Transportation (FDOT) project to construct improvements along three sections of S.R. A1A in Flagler County. A temporary traffic repair has been in place since the aftermath of Hurricane Matthew in late 2016.

 Fast Facts:

  • Southbound traffic on S.R. A1A will be detoured onto a local road, South Central Avenue, between South 7th Street and South 23rd Street.
  • Northbound traffic will remain on S.R. A1A.
  • The detour will be in place throughout the reconstruction.
  • Access to all businesses and homes will be maintained.
  • Access will also be available using side streets.
  • For those with driveways only on S.R. A1A, access will be available from northbound S.R. A1A.

Since this is a popular destination for tourists and visitors, drivers are asked to obey the posted speed limits on both S.R. A1A and Central Avenue, and to be alert for pedestrians and bicyclists in the area. Due to safety concerns, bicyclists and foot traffic are urged to stay in designated, safe areas throughout the project.

Segment 3: North 18th Street to Osprey Drive: The contractor continues to bring in sand and prepare for installation of the new buried seawall. Residents may have noticed the contractor installing forms near North 18th Street. This is not the seawall itself. These forms will be used to guide the drill and form the new concrete shafts of the wall. These shafts will be about 36 feet deep. The contractor is expected to move its drilling equipment onto the work site this week. This movement is likely to require short stoppages of traffic using flagging operations along A1A.

Dune Walkovers:

The contractor will continue to remove dune walkovers as needed to accommodate construction of the buried seawall. The affected dune walkovers include both public and private walkovers between North 18th Street and Osprey Drive. By contract, all affected dune walkovers will be reconstructed once work is complete to their pre-construction condition. The contractor is carefully removing and storing separately the existing materials for each walkover. Photographs also are being taken to document existing conditions and will be used to assist with reconstruction.

 Please note that the walkovers must remain closed during construction for safety reasons.

The project team has announced that reconstruction of the walkovers is tentatively scheduled to begin in fall 2019. This timeframe is based on the current work schedule. Please note the schedule may be affected by weather or unforeseen circumstances.

The contractor has 300 days to complete the work.

Caution! Flagler Beach police and and Sherriff’s deputies are actively monitoring speed and writing tickets. “I got a warning on north section of A1A before construction actually began so I keep to the 25 limit, but still getting tailgated by cars wanting to go faster,” a reader tells us.

U.S. 1 and Old Dixie Highway Roundabout Construction Updates:

FlaglerLive is providing weekly updates to the planned 15-month, $4.1 million construction of a roundabout at U.S. 1 and Old Dixie Highway. The project started in late January and is scheduled for completion by spring 2020.

This week southbound U.S. 1 will be reduced to one lane and be shifted slightly west onto new pavement. Southbound U.S. 1 traffic heading to Old Dixie Highway will be directed to stay on southbound U.S. 1 and make a U-turn to return to Old Dixie Highway using northbound U.S. 1. Old Dixie Highway drivers heading to southbound U.S. 1 will have to turn onto northbound U.S. 1 and make a U-turn to access southbound U.S. 1. Later this week, northbound U.S. 1 will be reduced to one lane and shifted west onto the existing southbound side of the roadway. Once this shift is made, U.S. 1 will have one lane in each direction through the project area. The speed limit will be reduced along U.S. 1 through the construction zone, and drivers are asked to be alert and use caution when traveling through the work area.

Announcements:

flagler county commission government logoEngineering Department hosts MalaCompra Basin project update with residents: Flagler County’s Engineering Department will host a public meeting from 5 to 7 p.m. Wednesday, March 6 at the Hammock Community Center to provide an update on the MalaCompra Basin Water Quality Enhancement project. Mailed invitations will be sent to property owners who are directly impacted by the project – Marineland Acres, Rollins Dunes, and Seascape. “We want to keep residents informed about the status of the project,” said County Engineer Faith Alkhatib. “As always, we will do our best to minimize the impact on the daily life of our residents while we move forward with this health and safety project.” The project will accomplish two goals: ease flooding on the northern barrier island; and, prevent untreated stormwater and septic tank leachate from making its way into the Intracoastal and ultimately places like Pellicer Creek headwaters – a pristine estuarine system. Presently, construction for the system outfall improvements is underway. The stormwater treatment facility construction off Bay Drive will begin within the next couple of months. Design work is about 60 percent complete for the side street collection laterals. The construction for that $6 million portion of the project is almost fully funded through a Florida Department of Transportation grant for the 2019-20 fiscal year. Also assisting, the St. Johns River Water Management District in 2016 awarded Flagler County a $500,000 grant as a Rural Economic Development Initiative (REDI) cost-share program project. The District decades ago placed the project in its Northern Coastal Basin Surface Water Improvement Management (SWIM) plan. The Flagler County Board of County Commissioners tracked the problems for many years, and in 2010 agreed to make the project a top legislative priority. The County has spent more than $6 million combined on the design and permitting – through the St. Johns River Water Management District and the Army Corps of Engineers, as well as the acquisition of property for the holding pond and outfall easements. Hammock Community Center is located at 79 MalaCompra Road.

    ‘We told you so’ with All Aboard Florida/Virgin Trains USA

    Susan Mehiel Published 10:00 a.m. ET Feb. 27, 2019 | Updated 10:18 a.m. ET Feb. 28, 2019

    “…Could it be that taxpayers have to subsidize their debt because private investors won’t?

    Our bond and equity financing experts have reviewed All Aboard Florida’s financial documents and project 72 percent of their long-term capital will be debt. This could potentially result in one of the largest municipal bond defaults in history with Florida’s name on it.

    Regardless that the state doesn’t guarantee the bonds, being approved and issued by a Florida conduit, their default could have a market effect and impact Florida state borrowings in the future…”
